5 Bold Predictions as Cleveland Browns face Broncos
3. Cleveland Receivers Will Get Out of Their Slump
The Browns passing offense hasn’t been easy to watch — they are full of talent but have yet to capitalize on it. There are many reasons for that but the most important may be that they’ve faced some really good defenses.
Denver has a good defense but they don’t have enough talent in the secondary to keep up with the weapons Cleveland boasts. But they will need somebody to step up other than Odell Beckham, Jr. and Jarvis Landry — which has been a problem for them.
This is the time for them to step up because the Broncos best cornerback Chris Harris Jr. will likely cover Beckham most of the game.
This is the time for Rashad Higgins and Antonio Callaway to make their presence known. Neither has been very effective after being productive last year.
Callaway was suspended for the first four games of the year and has not looked prepared to play football since he came back. Higgins dealt with an injury early in the season and also hasn’t looked like himself since returning.
For the receivers to get going Baker Mayfield has to have to throw the ball. Part of the is the offensive line and part of it is playcalling, if you know your line isn’t very good then you should run routes that get you open fast.
If they can call plays to quickly the ball in the hands of their playmakers they will make plays against a Broncos team that is on a downward spiral.
